Kia Ora,

According to my notes taken from our Urupa at Poihakena, our Tupuna Wetini Mahikai died in 1890 and his wife Hera Wetini in 1908.
Wetini Mahikai is buried in Parihaka and my understanding is that Hera returned to Hauraki after Wetini Mahikai left for Taranaki. There was some dispute over his land holding in Whaingaroa.

Tena Koe Maorinan, Thank you for your message.. My whanau are buried at poihakena urupa.. Ive Been wanting to find whanau and to see if we could have a 100 year memorial day for Koro Wetini,s Headstone next year september 2012.. Our Grandad Kuru Riki and other Kaumatua wanted something done to revive and restore the stone for the nxt 100 years and for the next generations.. I did raise the Issue at a marae meeting at poihakena about 10 years ago how ever I didnt follow that up, but there were many other things going on for our iwi back then, But anyway never too late I guess... Anyway would like to thank you again for your reply, Appreciate that very much... Do take care, keep well, God Bless and do hope that we can keep in touch... Atutahi Riki Waahanga. 0220286475... Paimaarire...

Tena koe Atutahi
I am connected to this family by Amiria Wetini who married Clement Newton aka Remana Nutana. I was excited to see that you have a photo of him. I was wondering whether any other photos exist of Amiria and Remana? Remana's sister Hannah Hadden was my g/g/grandmother. She grew up in Taupiri.
Would enjoy hearing from you, and would be interested in joining the 100 yr memorial at Poihaakena Marae in Sept. We have visited there several times.

Tena Koe Atutahi My name is Kataraina Clarke nee Newton. Daughter of Runi Newton who is a son of Keiha Newton and Kataraina (nee Aubrey). Keiha is a son of Te Remana Newton and Amiria Rangihaipanga (nee Wetini) Amiria is a daughter of William Wetini Mahikai, the tupuna in discussion. This sounds all very exciting as am attempting to research Wetini Mahikai and connections to Ngati Koata of whom I have recently connected too. Would love to meet or dialogue more. [email protected]

kia ora, I am Adam Ellis, son of Marlane Waretini who is now buried at Poihakena Marae in Raglan. She is a direct descendent of wetini mahikai and Hera wetini through her father Raurau (Runi) Waretini. I have my whakapapa with Wetini in it as my great great grandfather. I would also like some more information on him as mum always said he was buried in Parihaka but according to older documents he died of a burst blood vessel in his brain and perished in Whatawhata? I was wondering if this is true then where is he actually buried? This is of interest to me as my beautiful mother has recently passed and I owe it to her to get the truth.
